Summary: I like this charger.. it's a bit nicer then the last controller charger I had. I like that the controllers fit in very easy to the slots on the charger. It is kinda weird how they do because you have to attach a piece to the controller that connects to the part of the charger that actually charges...
Summary: This product makes charging your controllers so much easier! Only issue I had was my cat kept wanting to chew on the power cable.... Note: You do have to keep the charging element plugged into your controllers so they can charge. It is a very thin discrete peace of plastic. Really a non issue.
Summary: This product makes it a lot more convenient to charge your dualshock controllers. You just plug in your controllers and the charging begins, when they're full you remove them, simple as that really. I like that it also includes additional USB ports on the side.
Fragility of clips & their unavailability a problem

Summary: The charging station basically works but as others have pointed out, it is completely impossible to get replacements for the clips that attach to the controllers. It is also fairly easy to break them, especially for a child.
Summary: I think it was a Nyko charger that I got for $8. It worked okay for a while but got harder and harder to sync up correctly. Plus, the PS3 had to be on for it to charge. This Sony unit was much more, but worth it. Plugs directly into outlet so it charges without unit being on.
Summary: This charger is very practical and worked pretty well for 1 day. As I have 3 controllers and the charger comes with only 2 clips, my son needs to change the clip from one controller to the other. On the first time he tried to remove the clip to change the controller, it broke.
Summary: This charging station looked nice so I went for it. I was surprised at just how well this thing works. I would give it 10 stars if that option was available. This unit comes with a small charging clip that you insert into the remote charing port.
Summary: I was impressed with the ease of setup and use of the charging station. It does not take a rocket scientist to get full use right out of the packing container. Just plug everything where it needs to go and you are charging your dual shock controllers.
Summary: This is a great little mount for your PS3 controllers. The only downside is that the little adapter that slips onto the controllers to allow for drop in charging gets in the way of external peripherals like the official keyboard.
